What's with the Cattitude?

I recently picked up a mini set of OPI’s Shrek collection and I couldn’t wait to try them out so expect a few NOTD’s featuring Shrek OPI polishes!
This is What’s with the Cattitude and is described as 'a moody light blue that's really a pussycat' .
My first thoughts when I saw this was it’s a mix between Eyeko’s rain polish and barry M’s turquoise, and both of those are very similar but this is somewhere in the middle. It’s not as bright as a turquoise so you can wear this during in winter no problem but it’s not got as much gray nor is it as soft as Eyeko’s rain. It’s the perfect balance.
I also love how this looks with my fair skin tone. I was a little surprised at the formula as I expected OPI to be really easy to work with but the first coat was scarily streaky however after the third coat you suddenly end up with an opaque, streak free finish!
I think I’ll be wearing this one a lot of in spring, what do you think of this colour? And what do you think of OPI’s formulation??

This is a lovely colour!
I love OPI nail polishes. I only have a few, but they're very easy to work with. Maybe it depends on the nail polish, I don't know... x

Love this colour - is it a bit like Chanel's Nouvelle Vague? Xx

..R May A.. said...

@Gawgus things it's very similar but it doesn't have the same minty green tones - it's very much a blue :)

I LOVE minicollections. I'm not a huge nail polish girl but I do like putting it on once in a while. Mini collections are excellent ways for me to try out different colours all the time without having to splurge on something I rarely ever wear.
Have a great one! x http://xnta.blogspot.com/

I love the colour, it's so pretty :)

I only have a couple of opi polishes, but the formulation is different in them all, one is really running and streaky and others are one coaters :)

I think it's a lovely colour. Maybe more for summer than for now - especially mixed with other bright colours like pink and yellow!

Ohmigosh this is such a gorgeous color - I want, I want, want!

Personally, OPI and Nicole by OPI are my favorite nail polish brands - I really love their staying power, and range of colors!! :)

Stunning colour! xx

That colour is surprisingly nice. I normally wouldn't go for a blue but it looks with your skin tone. I have tons of OPI polish and generally I find it covers very well in two swipes. Essie is my favourite though.

Meda said...

The colour is beautifull. Very fresh.
I want it too!!
